Explanation:
Question (1-5):
First the vowels are arranged in alphabetical order and then consonant are arranged. The numbers are arranged in descending order. In step-I first word in the alphabetical order is moved to left end and then smallest number is moved to the right end. In step-II the largest number is moved to left end and then the first word in reverse alphabetical order is moved to the right end. The same procedure is continued till all the letters and numbers get rearranged.
InputÂ Â  : 57 computer 33 index 65 economy 46 notes 14 prepare 98 environment teacher 85
Step-IÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  :economy 57 computer 33 index 65 46 notes prepare 98 environment teacher 85 14
Step-IIÂ  :economy 98 57 computer 33 index 65 46 notes prepare environment 85 teacher14
Step-III:economy 98 environment 57 computer index 65 46 notes prepare 85 33 teacher14
Step-IV:economy 98 environment 85 57 computer index 65 46 notes prepare 33 teacher14
Step-VÂ  : economy 98 environment 85 index 57 computer 65 notes 46 prepare 33 teacher14
Step-VI :economy 98 environment 85 index 65 57 computer notes 46 prepare 33 teacher14
Step-VII:economy 98 environment 85 index 65 computer 57 notes 46 prepare 33 teacher14
Â
There are four numbers between â€˜environmentâ€™ and â€˜notesâ€™.
Â Step-IV: economy 98 â€˜environment85 57 computer index 65 46notesâ€™ prepare 33 teacher14
Â
Third to the right of eighth element from right end i.e. fifth element from right end in step-3 is â€˜Prepareâ€™.Â
Â
There are seven steps are required to complete the arrangement.
Â
In step-2, there are two elements between â€˜indexâ€™ and â€˜notesâ€™ and in step-5, there are two elements between â€˜computerâ€™ and â€˜46â€™. So â€˜85â€™ is related to â€˜57â€™ in step-6.
Â
The position of â€˜65â€™ is Seventh from the right end in step-5. Hence, only option b) is correct.
Â
Question (6-10):Â
Product the two digits of each number and then arrange the numbers in ascending order according to the products of the number. The words are arranged in reverse alphabetical order. In the first step smallest number (based on product of the number) is moved to left end and same time the first word in the reverse alphabetical order is moved to right end. The same procedure is continued till all the letters and numbers get rearranged.
Input : arrest 56 artist 29 army 81 arrive 11 arch 39 72 arise
Step-IÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â  : 11 arrest 56 29 army 81 arrive arch 39 72 arise artist
Step-II:11 81 arrest 56 29 army arch 39 72 arise artist arrive
Step-III:11 81 72 56 29 army arch 39 arise artist arrive arrestÂ
Step-IV:11 81 72 29 56 arch 39 arise artist arrive arrest army
Step-V:11 81 72 29 39 56 arch artist arrive arrest army arise
Step-VI:11 81 72 29 39 56 artist arrive arrest army arise arch
There are six steps are required to complete the given arrangement. Hence, the last but one is step-V.
Â
There are two numbers between 29 and arrive in step-4.
Step-IV:11 81 72 â€˜2956 arch 39 arise artistarriveâ€™ arrest army.
Â
After interchanging, there are three elements between â€˜29â€™ and â€˜72â€™ in step-3.
Step-III:11 81 arise 5629 army arch 3972artist arrive arrest
